Happy Monday! Since my beauty shopping list went down so well last week I thought to do a home version. Lately I’ve been really thinking of finally getting my own place. I’ve been saving for a down payment to one for so long and I thought maybe it was time. I’ve been looking before at apartments to rent but my cousin suggested to just save and buy my own place instead. I thought that was wise and now I went out and found the most pretty place that I can see myself living. It might be a while for the whole process but getting an idea of what to expect is exciting me. So instead of revamping my room like I was planning to I thought the money I’m going to spend I’ll just put it in furniture and home decor for my own place. I’ve been watching so many moving vlogs on Youtube and then so many home decor hauls as well it has got me so inspired to create a mental list of what I would like my place to look like. So this is a shopping list of different furniture and home decor to add in my new place once everything is finalized.
The theme of my future place is coming together. As you can see just like in my room decor wish list I did a while back than I already have chosen an overall color scheme. I’m expecting it to be a splash of blush pink and rose gold/ copper. It’s just my aesthetic and I am happiest with these so I know my place will be this cosy and pretty place I can be content at when I’m there.
I’m starting off with the first thing which is curtains. I honestly haven’t chosen my own curtains while living with my parents. My mom always had custom curtains made for the whole house including my room which is fine and I’m not complaining but I’m kind of looking forward to having my own pick. Since I am in love with the tassel trend in fashion I kind of want to have that with my hoe decor as well. The lovely people at http://www.
There’s this store I found last week that was the perfect home and furniture store. As soon as I walked in I was in decor heaven. I passed the store a few months ago and on display was this gorgeous rose gold/copper bed. It is seriously my dream bed and I haven’t gotten it out of my head in months. That is when I said I would buy this bed when I get my own place. When I went in to the store and saw it again I just fell in love all over again. It will be the first thing I am going to treat myself with my new place. So when my cousin and I strolled into that home store we saw so many things and it inspired everything. I also saw this gorgeous pink couch and arm chair on display and again I loved them both. While I still can I would love a very girly house but not overly girly if that makes sense. I want a few girly pieces and then neutral so it is a good balance.
Then the cushions. I love cushions and have been filling my room with them so of course my house will be overflowing with them. You don’t want to know how many pillows I sleep with. Since watching everyone’s homeware hauls this fluffy pink pillow keeps popping up everywhere and you know what I love it as well. I am so getting myself one as well. Also other cushions as well like this rose gold one to tie in that theme as well. Then for my cooking ware I have always told my dad I wanted pink pots and pans and pink plates. My aunts even promised if I did get my own place they wouldn’t be surprised and would buy pink appliances for me. I don’t want everything pink but I think I can settle with a pink pan and then a few plates that have a pink design. I’m not sure yet what my final plans are but I can imagine having a pink kitchen.
Moving on to the rose gold and copper furniture. I saw this coffee table on Pinterest and styled in so many ways. It does look so pretty and a perfect center piece to a living room. I don’t know yet if the rose gold mirror bedside tables will be too much with a rose gold bed yet as I haven’t seen them together so for now I am just going to leave it alone. Next is this wire basket I see popping up all the time on Pinterest again and I do love a good storage piece. Last is this rose gold clothing rack. After I got home from my vacation and the hotel had one of these I liked the idea of displaying my pretty clothes and bags on it and maybe use it for a background of my video. I also have to have the matching pink and copper hangers to look aesthetically pleasing as well.
As for storage I have been eyeing these cube shelves even before I move. I think they would be so good to display my bags and shoes and a few decorative pieces as well. I’m also keen on those ladder shelves I see everywhere too. All I know is I want plenty of bookshelves and shelf space to add random decor as I never had that and I want to and master the art of shelf decorating for some reason after being inspired by all the prettiness all over social media. Let me know if you are any good at it and if it is something you are interested in as well like I seem to be for some reason.
That is my home decor wish list for the month! I hope this inspired you. I’m so excited to start and try to get my own place. It has been my dream the last few years and I’m finally going to act on it. I’m still looking to make my mind up. I might not even stay in the Philippines either. Everything is in the planning stages but it still isn’t stopping me from looking at pretty home decor to get an idea. Let me know if you recently moved or are moving or in the same boat as I am. I’d love to know what you did and if you had any big plans to what you wanted your home to look like. If you couldn’t tell I’m a big planner and have to plan everything just right which sometimes is a huge problem but I am so organized. Its a win-lose some times but I’m working on it. I’m hoping this inspired you and you got some new home picks you may want. Actually I’m heading out with my cousin to look at some places in their area tomorrow so I’m excited to see what it has to offer. It sounds nice so I just have to go look. Wish me luck on house hunting!
